Bristol Palin: I’m giving it my all in this competition!

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 8, 2010

If anyone had any doubt as to whether Bristol wants to go back to Alaska or go full speed ahead in the DWTS competition, this comment she posted on her Facebook page Saturday morning should put those doubts to rest.  Bristol also reached 11,000 Facebook followers on Sunday evening.

Yes I want you guys to keep voting!!!!!! In my confessional on Tuesday night I said I miss my family and that I miss my home, not that I want to go home. This competition means so much to me! I’m working my butt off everyday at the studio, and I pray viewers are seeing that!!! I’m committed to doing my best in this competition and giving it my all – week after week!

Bristol and Mark have been hard at work rehearsing two dances, the Argentine tango and the mamba, for tonight’s Dancing with the Stars competition.  Mark gives us an inside look on his DWTS Journal on USA Today:

I’m exhausted.

Seriously, I’m absolutely exhausted! What a crazy ride this season has been. There have been so many ups and downs that it’s been a train wreck on the emotions. Everyone counts us out and we survive every week. Why is that? It’s the fans.

Bristol has such an endearing quality about her that is extremely relatable, and it’s amazing how many fans support us because of it. I think because her family is in politics that just the mention of her last name causes a reaction, and she carries herself with such class and grace that you can’t help but root for her.

Did you see my reaction Tuesday night when we were saved? It was quite the celebration on my end. That’s not because I don’t believe we belong. It’s actually because I’m so grateful that the fans allows us to continue to work hard and progress each week.

Last entry, I told you that our first dance for Week 8 is the Argentine Tango. We were in the dance studio choreographing and learning that routine for eight hours Wednesday, followed up by another long day on Thursday. I now know what our second dance is — the Samba.

While Bristol picked up the Argentine Tango quickly (remember how well she did with a similar dance two weeks ago with Tango, earning us the encore?) the Samba provides a new challenge to her.

We learn of our music at the beginning of the rehearsal week, but we won’t know our Samba song until 20 minutes before we have to dance it live in front of 20 million people. Think about that for a moment. It’s genuinely terrifying to a non-dancer. But I’m used to it because that’s how all ballroom competitions are. I try to downplay not having the music in rehearsal though, because it’s really not a big deal. Bristol has musicality, so I know she can adapt to whatever song they give us.

Thursday, we taped Ellen DeGeneres‘ show, which was a lot of fun. She just cracks me up! It airs Monday, and if you watch, notice that I spent most of the segment laughing. I couldn’t stop picturing Jim Parsons (from CBS’ The Big Bang Theory) getting scared in the segment before ours. It was so hilarious! We danced our Cha Cha from the group dance this past week. Bristol really did a great job.

Last Monday was DWTS’ 200th episode extravaganza. We had a party after the show to celebrate with the entire cast and crew and all the previous dancers (both celebs and pros) came out. It was great to see everyone and I’m thankful to be on a hugely successful and fun show that’s had such longevity.

Mark also mentions a mysterious trip over the weekend in which he and Bristol traveled for the show.  I’m sure we’ll find out about that trip this week.  And we also have Mark and Bristol’s appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show airing later today.

Be sure to tune in tonight on ABC and vote for Bristol and Mark on Week 8 of DWTS.  I’m certain they will have a superb performance, but remember that our vote carries equal weight with the judges’ scores.  So vote, vote, vote for Bristol and Mark!

As a reminder, you can vote by phone by calling 1-800-868-3407 or by texting 3407 (AT&T customers only).   You can vote online by logging in at the Dancing With the Stars Voting Page. 

Voting by phone is open from the start of the show in your time zone until 30 minutes after the show ends.  Online voting is open from 8 PM EST on Monday night until 11 AM EST Tuesday morning.   That means that online voting starts and ends 4 hours earlier in Alaska than on the East Coast, 3 hours earlier on the Pacific Coast, 2 hours earlier Mountain Time, and 1 hour earlier Central Time.  

You can use your Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and personal e-mail accounts to vote.  There is more information about voting at VOTING — HOW IT WORKS.   This week you can vote 5 times for each account.

As you know, our votes are factored in with the judges’ scores.  We know Bristol and Mark’s performance will be outstanding, so let’s do our part to help them win!
